What I'd like to know, though, is what is the name of the program that creates the flip books. And, how can I convert pdf files into flip books like yours.

I updated the documentation with a "How the Book Reader Works" section that talks about the images that the new flip book uses. http://openlibrary.org/dev/docs/bookreader

The flipbooks aren't created from the pdfs but from a stack of cropped and deskewed images. This image stack is used to create the flipbook, the pdf, and djvu file.

Also, to convert existing pdfs into a stack of images for use with the flip book, you can use ImageMagick or GhostScript.

You can use the ImageMagick 'convert' command to do this:

convert input.pdf page%03d.jpg

You can learn more about ImageMagick at http://www.imagemagick.org/

we would like you to upload your PDF's to the archive. We are working to expand our PDF deriver so that any pdf uploaded will be able to be a flip book (and embeddable).

Please upload!

There are many similar programs, such as the flash flipbook software of 3D Page Flip Standard is a good reference for you. I have seen my friend to use this tool, it's really easy to convert PDF to flip book and make book with 3D effect. 3dpageflip.com is the website for your reference.
